Eagle Creek Load Warrior 22 Review

By WAVEJourney Editor Jill Hoelting

What grabbed me about the Eagle Creek Load Warrior 22 durable carry-on were all the grab handles. Four, count ’em, four grab handles on this tough-as-nails, aptly-named Load Warrior. This is a freakin’ awesome bag for weekend get-aways or the long haul for the conscientious pack-light traveller.

With the expandability feature, you can get fat (your bag, that is) and relax while on your trip and check the Load Warrior home, if necessary.

Bikers and beer drinkers unite over this bag. Eagle Creek’s signature Equipment Keeper allows for the easy clip-on of a bike helmet, along with the Porter Key for opening that beverage of choice. WAVEJourney always encourages delighting in the discovery of new and interesting brews along the way.
